Pretty knife, and pretty wood too, is it stabilized burl or just cut and polished as it comes out of the root ball?

Stabalized Sean. Yeah - otherwise an oatmeal cookie would have greater strength. This is vaccum treated so it's permeated with resin. Not just a coating - it's thru and thru.

Another case where beauty and strength in a piece of wood don't come together without a little help. At least you don't have to worry about weight in knife scales like you do in a rifle stock.

Hi Sean

Honestly, the whole knife feels nearly weightless. That is absolutely the first thing anyone says about a model 97. I work and fit. I engrave and polish. I heat treat sharpen .... and .... and ..... wow

First comment is always .... "It's so LIGHT!!!!!"

Haha.

The scales weigh about half a Saltine Cracker.

Thanks Gary, I was going to ask about some oatmeal cookie handles but you shot that down.

It looks really nice.
